Many of us have noticed that the Wild Buffalo Grill, a local restaurant at 10024 Washington Blvd. N. (Route 1), has been closed for a while. The owners are remodeling and doing some repairs to the building after it was hit by lightning last month.
Don't worry, though, they do plan to reopen this month. If you are interested in being notified of when they are open for business again, give them at 301-604-9100 and leave your name and number. They will call you when they have an exact date.
